    Which primer, the Fiocchi or the Cheddite primer, will stretch the primer pocket out the most?

    Fiocchi, no contest! The only one larger is the RIO.

    The better question is, which one shrinks the wallet the most.

    notquite27 Thanks! That confirms my suspicion that that was the case. Probably why I'm having so many light hits with Cheddite primers after using Fiocchi primers in these hulls.

    I reload the Fiocchi 616 like a Winnie 209. I use them on hulls that are about ready to hit the can or shell I can't retrieve at S/C. Keeps costs down a bit. Have reloaded thousands of them with no problems at all.

    Cheddite Primers are good - but very hard , firing pins dont like -- Fiocchi primers are softer and have worked much better for us , we have used over 100,000 of each just stay with the same primer in hulls hope this helps . Bryan

    I thought noble sports were the largest(I bought ten thousand when I couldn't get Fiocchi's or Cheddites but never used them). I have used Fiocchi and Cheddites in the same hulls and never had a problem period. I use a lot of different guns as well as all four gauges and had no off sounding shells. Jackie B.

    Looks like the chart confirms Fiocchi are larger in diameter than Cheddite.

    Goatskin, where did the chart come from you show?

    shootsome, I read that chart as saying "C" the Fiocchi and the Cheddite are the same. The Cheddite is smaller at "A" than the Fiocchi, but not signifcantly. I use both with no problems.

    The Wolf seems to be the closest to the AA and Cheddite. Has anyone used Wolf? They appear to be the lease expensive. i just paid $117.00 for a sleeve of Cheddites.

    shootsome,

    I believe goatskin's chart came from Trapshooting USA issue #4. URL is above.

    Luvs2shoot, You are right. I read the chart wrong. Ced & Fio are the same diameter.

    As I think about my problem with light hits in the top barrel with three different guns I own, it seems like the problem only occurs with Winchester hulls (compression formed or HS). In other words Cheds only cause the light hits in WAA hulls after using FIO's but not Rem. Seems like I can switch primers back and forth with Rem STS hulls without problems but not Winchester? That's strange?

    Doug, Thanks. I thought I posted an answer last nite ... but it may have been a turkey dream.

    Other than the date I saved it (Feb 2011), I had no idea of the provenance, but I try to rip only the best stuff.

    Anyone use Wolf? I was told there is no loading data, you use Winchester information and they are the equal heat? I am tempted to try them at 90.00 a brick, but don't want to save a few bucks to have issues with them.

    I tried a couple hundred Wolf primers and didn't have any problems. I don't think I loaded enough of them to fully evaluate them. I can't find them any more.

    I think Wolf made (makes) PMC primers, I have used almost 15000 PMCs (for practice) with 1 dud so far wish my average was that good. grin Ross Puls

    I just found out PMC makes the Wolf primer, Wolf is just the marketed name on them. Anyone have feedback on pro's or con's of PMC/Wolf in their usage?
